Music

Submission + - The father of rock amplification is dead (jimmarshall.co.uk)

FaxeTheCat writes: The founder and manager of Marshall amps, Jim Marshall is dead at 88.
If you need more references than the name, then you probably have not been listening to music much during the last 50 years.
Usually we ask for a minute of silence when somebody is dead, but in this case I think it is more appropriate to ask for a minute of the sound of a guitar feeding back through a wall of Marshall stacks.

Television

Submission + - Worlds longest direct TV program (nrk.no)

FaxeTheCat writes: The Norwegian Public broadcaster is doing a five an a half day around the clock broadcast from the coastal liner "Hurtigruten". Not only is this (according to them) worlds longest direct TV broadcast, the material will be made available as torrents with a Creative Commons license, and there is a "mashup" competition. Details (in english) at the projects home page: http://nrk.no/hurtigruten/?lang=en
Not your average action show, but if you like fjords and mountains and a slow pace, this may be just the thing for you!
